Shadow Shot Sunday : Carved Capital



Hey there.  Here's my shadow shots for this weeks shadow shot sunday.  I just loved the details on this building in Pasadena, Ca.  They have so many amazing old buildings around there.   The carved details and shadows on this wonderful capital stood out to me, so of course, I had to take some photos.


To join in with your own shadowy photos, or to just see more click here to go over to Hey Harriet's for Shadow Shot Sunday.  Enjoy!

Oh I love the details too! Sometimes when I go for my art walks I will stare at all the beautiful detail on some buildings. I could look at them for hours! I also love finding new manholes with artistic covers!

ohhh...how we love architectural pieces! this is fabulous! It's amazing what people miss keeping their eyes on the ground - looking up and around - there is so much that you'd miss if you didn't!!
Have a super week Esther!

A beautiful old building! And you found lovely shadows decorating it! I just love the details that can be found on the older buildings. Modern architecture, while flash in may ways, lacks character. lacks soul. But who knows, maybe our current buildings of today will look more interesting to people viewing them 100s of years down the track! Hope you have a wonderful week ahead :)

NOW THAT'S THE SORT OF DETAILING ON A BUILDING THAT I LOVE TO DRAW.....and photograph! Great lighting....that would make a wonderful abstract design...if drawn close up on a page!

Inspiration is all around us!

Oh...I loved your textured card too, btw! I need to get busy here in the studio and work on something watercoloured for today!

Ciao bella!
